Roasted Sweet Potatoes With Maple-Allspice Butter

1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp ground pepper
8 small sweet potatoes

Mix first five ingredients in medium bowl. Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly pierce potatoes with fork. Set potatoes on oven rack; bake until tender when pierced with skewer, about 1 hour. Cut cross in top of each potato. Using oven mitts to protect hands, squeeze potatoes gently in from sides, forcing crosses to open. Spoon one tablespoon butter into each potato. Serve, passing remaining butter separately.
